Manchester City and Juventus are planning fresh offers for Arsenal contract rebel Robin van Persie.

Juve have failed with an opening £8 million offer for the Dutchman.

The Daily Mail says the Serie A side are expected to return with a new bid for the striker - but are only willing to go to around £12million given Van Persie's age and the fact he has just 12 months left on his deal.

Manchester City are also preparing their first move for Van Persie this week.
